evolving relationship with the new libyan government to control al-qaeda's presence and respect their sovereignty. where do we go in this evolving arab spring, in libya in particular. >> a lot of this takes time. building up a strong system of government, institution of government libya in particular build gadhafi never wanted an institution that would rival his him. every political faction within libya has weapons and obviously at least one of them or more used them on the consulate a few weeks ago. >> eliot: what i hear you saying, and what i think is critically important, after the revolution after the sort we witnessed and facilitateed in lib y things evolve. and the president used the phrase, there will be bumps in the road. the arc of any evolution is that it evolves over time. diplomacy could be a problem when it is so needed. >> there is a strategy, turning the opposition that overthrew gadhafi into a functioning government and help that government blow a popular support--grow a popular support. that will take time. there is a strategy, but where romney gets it wrong is

of everybody. i wonder if there is anchoralation while they were moving ahead,s the rest of the government was subsidizing more and more people. why is it always assumeed why somebody doesn't succeed because they can't or doesn't want to. >> cenk: interesting. he seems to indicate, well, that the government is subsidizing the for a. he's taking the incentive away. the bottom 60%, what are the tax breaks they get? they got 20% of the tax breaks. so you know they're 60% of the country but they only got 20% of the tax breaks. let's look at where sam zell is, they got 24% of the tax breaks. they got more tax breaks than the bottom 60%. what do they do? they say, can you believe what the bottom is getting in terms of tax breaks from the government is subsidizing their way of life. no they're subsidizing your way of life. >> the world is not a zero-sum game. if i succeed, it doesn't mean that you don't. i succeed because i'm driven, and i take the risks and deal with it. >> cenk: well, of course if you don't succeed and you drive the tribune company into bankruptcy, and you do it all on your own
will pose a question the first three pods are about the economy, the next two about governance, and the last about health care. what jim lehrer is going to do is pose a question and each candidate will have two minutes to respond, and then the next ten minutes he can go wherever he wants. he can have that talk with each other, or follow up. and that's up with of the things i have to tell you, the candidates and campaigns i am told are a little bit nervous about. they expect jim lehrer to be mildly aggressive but again, the possibility for mitt romney and barack obama to encourage and engage each other should be one of the more intriguing aspects of this debate. >> cenk: so romney can ask president obama a direct question, and the time will be monitored by jim lehrer in a very lose way; is that right? >> that's right. if mitt romney wants to say president obama how do you explain the fact that you said the economy would be doing better than it has been. jim lehrer can say, president obama why don't you respond. >> cenk: all right. thank you so much. it's
whatever it wants with no government oversight whatsoever. the policies of starting a war here and a war there and a war there and never paying for it. the policies of giving the wealthiest of americans all the tax breaks while screwing the middle class. that's the choice. i thought president obama should have made -- as his campaign has, made that choice very, very clear in his opening statement and said you know, forward with me or backward with mitt. he didn't. and mitt romney, when he got his statement, he went right away and said that guy's been there for four years and look what a mess we're in and i can do it better. it was b.s. but he delivered it right into the camera in a very -- not convincing to me but in a very -- but in a better way -- we've never seen mitt romney better and i don't think -- i don't remember seeing president obama more disappointing. chris in chicago. joins us. hello, chris, good morning. what do you say? >> caller: good morning, bill. i blame you for this. you had no business travel
issues of the campaign. the focus will be on the role of government, the economy and health care. mitt romney has a history of shall we sa waffling a little bit on these important issues we even have a collection of mitt's flip flops here inside the war room but this suggests where his position is actually going to be on wednesday night. first off, the role of government as a subject, and that really gets fundamentally to the issue of taxes, at least for mitt romney. the romney memo says that mitt romney will not raise taxes on anyone and that he will deliver tax cuts for the middle class. sounds pretty good, but the brookings tax policy center took a look at this issue, and here is what they found. under mitt romney 95% of americans making under $200,000 would have a tax increase averaging $2,000 while the wealthiest americans would see tax cuts of up to $86,000 per year. and his claim that he can give the wealthy those tax breaks and still close the deficit, that claim is mathematically impossible according to the tax policy center. romney's fuzzy math has p
the government sticking its nose in is a huge problem. >> john: the government sticking its nose into all kinds of things. the civil rights act of 1964? if you're a libertarian might sound reasonable. if you apply for a job and the employer and employee agree on a salary, who's the government to get in there? some people in this country have decided discrimination is bad. that was todd akin coming out in favor of discrimination in the workplace not just against women. against anybody. so what's to stop a business from not hiring people of a race or religion or sexual orientation they don't like? under todd akin, nothing right? yeah, what a guy. so i'm going to have you play that about four times during this episode. i think it's more shocking than legitimate rape. 1-866-55-press. i'm john fuglesang filling in for bill all morning on your current radio and tv, this is the "bill press show." we'll be right back. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. >> announcer: heard around the

possibly the idea of a black person was someone who was -- wanted to live off of the government. it's just -- it's like watching an old movie, and believing the old movie was real. i think that's the way to put it. >> jamal: so we know that's the case. we have a president of the united states who has been arguing to the country that we know we're in a ditch. we know we have got to get out of a ditch. but do we get out of it by everybody getting behind and pushing the car out, or are we all going to get out of the ditch, every man and woman for him or herself are we going to work together or not? do you think that is something america is going to want? >> i get the feeling that mitt romney is being told what to do. i just feel that he's -- he's being manipulated heavily, and i don't think the real romney is going to show itself. it's not going to happen. i do give credit to president obama that he sticks to his guns on what his virtues are, and it comes out. i think he calculatedly thought it through on the debate to let mitt romney show his hand. because let's
